Autumn love

20140330-105634.jpg

Autumn is my favourite season. It’s when the colours in life come out to play. It’s warm enough to enjoy being outside. But the cool air is refreshing- it reminds me to breathe.

March hasn’t exactly been what I’d hope. But uni’s back and THE exam is done. I choose to look towards the great things. The hope that April will bring.

GRANOLA THERAPY… It’s a thing

20140304-211602.jpg

Today I made granola. It doesn’t seem like much but it made me feel so good. It’s only Tuesday and it’s already feeling a little bit like a BLEH kind of week. I’m thankful that I’m a sucker for the simple things otherwise it may have taken something a whole lot more complicated to appease my funk.

I got the idea for this granola from some friends who I recently visited at their new house! They’ve moved into the inner-city and of course making granola has become a Thursday night activity! Surely you know it’s what everyone in Camperdown can be found doing on such an evening. But the original recipe comes from the wonderful my new roots blog!

It turned out heavenly. Although I would suggest that you alter the amounts of the liquid ingredients depending on how moist you like your granola!

Overall next time you’re in a funk make some granola. If nothing else you’ve at least got some granola to snack on.

CHANCE ENCOUNTERS

There are some people in life that are just a breath of fresh air. Couldn’t believe my luck that I got to meet one on a rainy Thursday! A Thursday that would have otherwise been utterly uneventful turned into a Chinatown roaming, George street strolling, yogurtland hunting expedition. Perfect strangers can be a lot of fun. Cheers for that Iszy.

ADELAIDE// PART TWO

Image

Very, very late one night I had one of those overexcited moments. The kind of moment that actually lasted quite a few minutes but you only remember it as a short second. This moment lead to me buying tickets to a concert… in Adelaide, South Australia. Even though it was just a short 2 hour plane ride I was nervous to be travelling to a strange city where I knew no-one all on my own. But it certainly did ended up to be a stellar trip. Truly.

I left with the purpose of just going to watch a band play and I came back with so much love for the peaceful, relatively calm Adelaide city. I would revisit it in an instance! I wish it could have last a whole lot longer.

But why did I visit Adelaide in the first place?

THE NATIONAL.

And man was it well worth it to see such gifted musicians and performers in a venue such as Thebarton Theatre. They blew me away and I was left dumbfounded throughout their who performance. As I attended the concert alone there’s no one to attest to this. But I assure you not a word would have been exchanged had someone attend with me!

The day after was intended to be a null sort of day. BUT thanks to an unexpected friendship formed in my hostel dorm I met a lovely frenchie- Memona. She is goodness. Her adventurous spirit was fascinating as was she showed me around the city. This was the cherry on top of an already wonderful trip!

Oh Adelaide how good it was to simply Breathe

EUPHORIA

Euphoria// a feeling or state of intense excitement or happiness

So it’s clearly been a while since I last blogged. I know it’s ridiculous as I did REVIVE this blog so that i would actually post on it.

BUT in all truthfulness life has been too good, too sad and too inbetween.

So you see I was busy being present in my own life. I wish I could give a detailed account of everything that’s happened over the last month but that would be silly.

Instead here is a little overview of some of my highlights!
